Spencer is a simple, but effetive application that will enable the classic vertical Start Menu in Windows 8.
All users are used with the classic XP start menu, but in Windows 8 this menu is gone and is frustrating to quickly access and find different items and programs. This app will bring it back for you.
Spencer is portable, so you don't need to install it. You can right click on the executable (.exe) file and Pin it to Taskbar, then you can move it with drag&drop to the left or right.
When you click on the icon, the classic start menu will appear.
Spencer is available as free download for Windows 32-bit and 64-bit.
